Loving & Accepting Yourself!

Published October 22, 2019 by Shay Taree

So one of the things that I’ve been struggling with has been with me not caring about what people think and also learning that I can’t please everyone.

It’s not really my friends I have the issue with it’s mostly family that I’m still having this issue with. I’ve always struggled with trying to make one individual in my family happy but I’m learning that it just isn’t possible. Trying to do this has been causing me so much stress and also for me just to be generally unhappy. It’s caused me to not love myself and to not be happy with who I am. Plus it’s caused me to compare myself to others in my family since sometimes their accomplishments can be thrown in my face which makes me feel inadequate.

But I’m saying no more! I’ve been listening to a lot of different people that I admire and learning so much about myself and how to just love myself. Plus I’ve been working with a therapist to sort through these issues. Most of these issues stem from childhood so I know that it’s going to take time for me to work on these issues and not feel this way.

The main thing I’ve been watching on YouTube is a lot of Marvel interviews and specifically their panel interviews. The one person I’ve been watching the most is Sebastian Stan’s since he gives a lot of great advice and says a lot of inspirational things. It’s really helpful and has definitely inspired me to be more and not to worry about others that don’t bring anything special into my life.

I know that many people would keep things like this hidden but I don’t mind sharing since I hope that it can help others. Plus to show others that I’m not always a happy puppy but I’m getting through my issues and sadness one day at a time. I also want to show people that there is hope and that you don’t have to struggle with these issues alone. I also like to keep track of my progress and see where I’ve been and just how far I’ve come. For some reason I find this to be fulfilling and inspiring during those dark time’s that many of us go through.

So I hope that this brings hope to someone and that you love yourself! Also show others love since you don’t know what others are going through. Things are going to be okay and I know that all of you will succeed and be happy.

Monday Motivation: Taking Breaks!

Published October 14, 2019 by Shay Taree

I know that usually on Monday’s I record a motivational Monday video but this Monday I decided to do a blog post. This was because on Thursday I announced that I wouldn’t have a video for Saturday or Monday due to needing a mental break.

On that day on Thursday I definitely wasn’t feeling my best mentally and was not feeling up to recording a video. Actually I wasn’t feeling up to doing anything. I didn’t want to work out and all I really wanted to do was just sit on my bed and just cry. I was sad and just overall not happy.

How I decided to spend my night instead was by reading some fanfiction, watching some marvel interviews with the actors, daydreaming, and just overall doing what makes me happy. During when I have these moments I definitely want to just be in my room and curl up on my bed and do nothing. Sometimes I will also isolate myself which I know isn’t good. But also during this time I also really want to be around those in my life that I really love and care about. Usually this is my mom or dad because I know that they love me.

I also used this weekend to really work on myself and just enjoy my weekend. I’m honestly glad that I took this weekend off for a mental break. It really did help me and it put a lot of things in perspective for me.

So I definitely recommend taking a break when you can and just using the time to relax. It will definitely do you wonders and it will help you to feel a lot better and refreshed when it is time to go back to reality.

So what do you like to do to take a break? How do you like to spend your days when you need a mental break?

What Are You Thankful For?

Published September 12, 2019 by Shay Taree

I can’t exactly remember if I’ve wrote about this before but if I have then I’m sorry. But if not then I hope that you enjoy this post.

The main reason why I chose this topic is because I’m sure that you see everywhere people talking about that you should be thankful for what you have. People also say a lot that you should have a grateful heart.

For me this is something that I’ve been taking seriously for the past 6 months. Every morning I write down 5 things that I’m grateful for. This could be something small or something large. Honestly the list is endless and it’s an amazing practice.

For me I’m thankful for how creative I can be, being able to move my body, my family, my friends, and so many other things. Writing down the things I’m thankful for everyday has really changed my perspective on a lot of things. It’s also helped me to realize that I have a lot to be thankful for and I need to try and stop striving for more when I can even appreciate what I already have.

Overall I definitely suggest you try this practice. You don’t have to write down 5 things you could write only 3 things if you like. I also suggest that you really dig deep about things your thankful for, and as a challenge try to write different things everyday.

So what are you thankful for? If you like you can comment down below something that your thankful for. I would love to read them.

Calling Attention To Your Faults!

Published July 30, 2019 by Shay Taree

What made me think of this topic is due to a conversation that I had with my boyfriend. He helped me to call attention to something I didn’t realize was a problem. That problem was that I tended to not always do what I say I’m going to do or doing what I want to do regardless of what others want. Hearing him say this really brought to my attention that I need work on this because it isn’t fair to those around me.

So now I’m wondering how I can solve this problem. Well maybe not solve but definitely work on it. I know that one of the things I plan to do is start to notice when I’m doing those things and stop it right away. This way I can correct that behavior before it becomes an issue.

I also know that there are other things that I need to work on like trying to listen to others more and also taking criticism better. But I know that this is a start.

So now I recommend that everyone think about something that they may need to work on. Also if you do think of something how do you plan to overcome this issue or resolve it? If comfortable comment down below and let me know. I’m interested to read everyone’s comments.

Panic Attacks & Trying To Get Healthy!

Published July 9, 2019 by Shay Taree

As I’m writing this I am so so tired. The night before I slept horrible due to having a panic attack. If any of y’all have had a panic attack before they are horrible and even after it’s over (at least for me) I can feel the effects for hours after. Mostly it’s just the fear of having another one. But I’m blessed that I got through it.

One thing though that I’m trying to focus on is trying to get healthier. I want to start working out more, drinking more water, and also eating healthier. I can drink more water and working out I can work on. But the eating healthier part is what’s hard for me. I love sweets a lot and I love cheese. So I’m trying to figure out the best way to go about these things.

For starters I plan to start working out in the mornings before work for maybe like 10-15 mins and also eating a healthier breakfast. I don’t really like oatmeal but I’m going to try and start eating it. My biggest problem is lunch and dinner. Typically I don’t eat lunch and when it comes to dinner my family orders out a lot.

So I want to know for those of you who have gone through this or currently are do y’all have any advice. Also do y’all have any healthy recipes that you could recommend. Preferably for lunch or dinner. I mean I can eat salads but that may get old really fast. So comment those down below and to be honest I’m terrible in the kitchen so easy recipes would be awesome.

But y’all have a great day and please remember that you are you for a reason!
